Facebook for iPad is Now Available
The wait is over, Facebook has released their much anticipated iPad app onto the iOS App Store and it is now available to download from Apple. The app is full featured but seems to focus on photo sharing and the ability to play existing Facebook games directly within the application through HTML5. Facebook emphasizes the following points on the iPad apps page:
Enjoy bigger, better photos
Your photos take on new life on the iPad. They’re big, high-res and easy to flip through—like a real photo album.
Focus on what matters
With less on the screen, it’s easier to zoom in on your friends’ photos, updates and stories.
Navigate anywhere, fast
Just tap, slide or pinch to get from one screen to another and back again in no time.
Never lose your place
Use simplified navigation to send a message, see your notifications or browse your bookmarks without switching screens.
Play games on the go
Play your favorite Facebook games wherever you are, and on a bigger screen.
Tap to send messages
A simple dropdown menu makes it easy to scan and send messages without visiting your inbox.
Apparently Americans spend 16% of their total online time using Facebooks web site and mobile applications, so this is a fairly significant app release.
